Heresies Magazine Collection

Heresies: A Feminist Publication on Art and Politics was a feminist journal published from 1977 to 1992 by the Heresies Collective in New York. The Heresies Collective was a group of feminist artists who brought their different perspectives to the revolutionary New York art scene of the 1970s.

The journal Heresies was dedicated to diversity, dialogue and feminist critique of the intersection of art and politics. The journal approached these ideas from a “feminist perspective,” as its first issue explained:

“We are not only analyzing our own oppression in order to put an end to it, but also exploring concrete ways of transforming society into one that is socially just and culturally free.” -- from Heresies, Vol. 1, No. 1, January 1977

Members of the Heresies Collective took turns compiling and editing issues of Heresies. The rotating editorial staffs gave each issue of Heresies a different look and focus.

Initial members of the Heresies Collective included Joan Braderman, Mary Beth Edelson, Harmony Hammond, Elizabeth Hess, Arlene Ladden, Lucy Lippard, Miriam Schapiro and May Stevens.

Joan Braderman directed a 2009 documentary called The Heretics about the impact of the feminist journal and the collective. To make the film, she caught up with many of the Heresies women, who have continued to make art in different locations. Together they continued to tell the story of feminism and the feminist art movement.
